>> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. applause ] >> mike: hello, everyone. welcome. welcome to "huckabee." from the i fox news studios in new york city. it has been nine years ago this weekend that two planes halftimed by terrorists -- hijacked by terrorists changed this city's skyline and veamerica's city foreemembe september 11, not only those in new york, but also those tilled at the pentagon and
8:01 pm
aboard the united flight 93. we reflect on the effect that day still has on all of us. wherever in america we live. joining us tonight, former new york city mayor rudy giuliani who came to be known as "america's yor" for his leadership on the days and weeks following this tragedy. [ applause ] we also have amy award winning actor and political activist jon voight who shar how he thinks america has changed in the past nine years. [ applause ] plus, country music star randy travis is here with us. he has a new tribute to the victims of 9/11. [ applause ] none of us are going to forget where we were and what we were doing on tt day. and how what we were doing just didn't matter much. i was attending a conference at the soun governor's association in lexington, kentucky. along with other governors s whisked away to an underground command center in the kentucky state police
8:02 pm
headquarters while we all tried to manage our state's response from a distance. along with the fog and frantic and often unreliable information we were dealing with. as much as i remember the urgency of government business that day, i will never forget calling and being comforted to hear each of my children's voices. just to know they were all right. but for over 3,000 families, they would not have the voice of comfort. th wey were the ones whose loved ones went innocently to work. boarded an airplane that day. but would never come home again. to them, we dedicate this special edition of "huckabee" tonight. [ applause ] we want to begin with neil cavuto who joins us from liberty state park, across the river from ground zero. neil, thank you for joining me. i know you have put in a long day. but i want tot talk about first of all just some
8:03 pm
personal reflections. for you, this was not just a news event, as you began to hear what happened there at the world trade cent. these were people you knew. you knew many of the individuals who lost their lives that day. tell me what you started feeling as those names came forward to you on september 11. >> well, you know, like you, governor, you can't get over the magnitude of what has happened. at the time, what was happening and since i've beeorn covering wall street for so many years and at that time, covering wall street for so many years, i immediately got on the phone to see if a lot of my buddies and sources and pals were okay. i put in a call to david alder at alder asset management. he later died. tom ganny from canter fitzgerald, he later ed. so many more, so many more funerals and events and eulogies i had to be a part of.
8:04 pm
because the magnitude of the losses were so sweeping. you and i were briefly chatting before. we do talk about the loss of the financial capital and t deliberate target of the wall street area as a ctral part of that terrorist attack. but we lost a greateal of human capital and some of the best and brightest minds on wall street. losing them is something you don't easily recover from. those were some of the finest minds i had. in fact, in the case of mr. alger he had been on the show a few days prior talking to me about how head confidence in the american economy to come back and was looking forward to tax cuts, getting us back. i remember we got into a discussion about whether the investors were coming back in the market. days later he would be dead. so many stories like that, governor. i don't want to bring you or your audience down but it o is a reminder of what we lost that day. some incredible people. >> mike: neil, i think we ed to be sobered by it and be reminded that there was an
8:05 pm
extraordinary amount of human pain that day. you experienced it as friends of yours perished in what was a senseless act of cold-blooded murder at the hands of terrorists. it also want to reflect on something that gives us hope. hithere was a sense in which people thought this country would never ever recover. that our economy, that our marketplace would never recover. as you look back nine years, tell me from your perspective. you have been covering this field for 30 years. what is to you the most remarkable thing you see looking at it in perspective? >> how often the official media gets it wrong. i think the cover stories at the time that spoke of a coming depression. others said that there would be virtually, the death of the economy as we knew it. american capitalism was on he way down. america, the beacon o hope on the way down. it was supposed to be an awful christmas shopping season in a. matter of months. it wasn't. it was supposed to be a
8:06 pm
preview to a depression, as i said. it wasn't. it was supposed to lead to a multi-year freeze i investing. it didn't. it was supposed to question american leadership role as far as an economic bellwether. i sdidn't i onlyay these things, governor, to say how much the consensus crowd got it wrong and continues to get it wrong. i think if we learn anything from that day it's that we ave an amazing ability to come back under the most trying of circumstances. [ applause ] >> mike: neil, i've always told people i think you are arthe smartest, the hardest working, and one of the nicest guys in the business. once again, i want to say my heartfelt -- >> i totally agree with that. [ laughter ] thank you, governor. >> mike: i love you, buddy. thank you. two days after the twin towers collapsed in downtown manhattan, a symbol of hope appeared from out of the wreckage.♪
8:07 pm
♪ ♪ >> mike: the horrific images of september 11, 2001, are etched in all of our minds. for the brave men and women who helped in the recovery efrts, the images reach far beyond the television screen. just before dawn on september 13, 01, volunteer rescue worker frank just lifted three bodies from the rubble discovered a 20-foot high cross section of steel i-beams in the shape of a cross. he dropped to his knees in tears. it was a sign god hn't left us, he said. throughout the recovery effort at ground zero, the cross became a source of hope and faith for thousands of workers dealing with the unbearable conditions. they began to write on the cross the names of the dead. and held weekly masses at its
8:08 pm
base. on october 4, 2001, the cross was elevated on a pedestal above the rubble and blessed by father jordan, franciscan priest for st. peters, local church that served as a sanctuary for rescue workers. >> this is a cross for all people. not just for christians, but for all peopl e who gather here to pray in god's love. >> the crossro was moved from the world trade center site in october of 2006, in order for construction to continue. it now resides at st. peter's church. just four blocks from ground zero. >> mike: joining us in the audience is frank, the first man who discover the cross that gave hope andomfort to so many. frank, thank you for joining us today. [ applause ] i want to ask you when you saw that cross, what was the emotion that went through you when you first saw t it? >> it brought me to my knees. the firefighter was with me. we worked all night long, looking for search andra
8:09 pm
recovery operation that the firefighters were through. it brought me comfort. it let me know that throughout the charity and we ffdies and the picked up and put in body bags it gave us a symbol of hope. toughness to carry on. that was important to humanity. >> mike: a remarkable find. frank, tha you very much. [ applause ] also with us is richard sheara, director of the mayor's office of emergency anagementrd he w as one who coordinated at groundse effort zero. richard, great having you ry here. thank you very much. [ applause ] when you heard about the cross at ground ro, you were taken by it just as frank was. >> yeah, and when you look at it, farther jordan was father jordan had it right. it was symbol for all
8:10 pm
religions. the cross is symbol of christianity. i'm not christian. i'm jewish. >> mike: yet it touched you. >> it did. i saw how it touched everyone, like frank and tul a firefighters and the construction workers. and each and every day they found a little solace from it. an d those first few days there was, it was very, very difficult. and that, finding that cross and then eventually moving it on to west street made a big difference. it gave people something to think that god didn't abandon us. i, myself, said to rabbi potasnick from the fe department, how does god do something like this? his answer was simple. "god didn't do this. men did this." and that cross so much to so many ople.nk i hope with frank that it goes in the memorial asre other religious icons have all over the world in secular museums. that's where it belongs. >> mike: you looked at some
8:11 pm
of the ugliest sces that america had seen on its own soil. scenes in the aftermath of the twin towers falling. that cross became a reminder that as you were digging through rubble, looking for what was left of people and their lives and their work that there was hope. when people went to that cross as workers, what happened to them personally? >> you would see people cry. people that tough, hardened construction workers liked frank. and firefighters. and police officers. they would break down. when i think about it, i still get emotional. it had meanidng far beyond the two pieces of steel beam that it was in reality. it really brought comfort to a lot of people. >> mike: i want to say thank you very much, richard, for being here. and for sharing theer of that cross. thank you also for the
8:12 pm
magnificent job that you did in coordinating there at the site nine years ago today. we all owe you a debt of gratitude for the leadership that you and the other leaders of new york gave to this city, and to the rest of america. thank you very much. >> thank you, governor. [ applause ] >> mike: i'm going to say my special thanks today to michael haynes. he is a friend of mine from texas. he spent more than a year of his own life assisting rescue workers at ground zero. he first told me about the igrnd zero cross and what it meant. michael to you and marge, my hertfelt thanks and best wishes. michael is the guy there i the middle. ngest nights on the . and asked frequent heartburn sufferers, like carl, to put prilosec otc's 24 hour heartburn protection to the test for two weeks. the results? i can concentrate on everything i'm doing, t even think about it anymore. since i've bn taking it, i've been heartburn free, which is a big relief for me.

8:18 pm
that creates more grief, more pain for the issue of the mosque at ground zero has been a particular source of pain. >> well, yes, of course. you know, i have many concerns at this time about our country. one of my concerns is about our mayor bloomberg here. i saw him on different shows this morning and he's a puzzle to me. he has certainly been a good mayor. deepe has expressed his heartfelt compassion for the families of the 3,000 innocent victims of this muslim extremist onslaught. anead yet, at the same breath, he okays this mosque which i feel is a desecration against this heroic burial ground.
8:19 pm
ire can only feel there must be some personal agenda that we have yet to see. i will be waiting for it but i'm concerned. >> mike:it seems that there is a belief we have to accomdate people who disagree with us. we recognize that all muslims are not terrorists but those who flew the plane in the building those f days and flew the plane in the pentagon were islamic extrialists, ey were jihadist. the presencof the mosque is too painful a reminder for so manyle people, jon. >> i believe so. i believe, i'm very strong about this. i believe that this is the way to show the muslim world. i believe this is asi design ed

8:31 pm
>> it's hard for me to believe it's been nine years since everyone in america watched you take command of a situation that no one could have ever read a textbook and been prepared for. but you didt with an extraordinary sense of i think leadership that america looked to. the key thing with getting command -- [ inaudible ] i want youo walk us through mayor the fact that the first thing after a horrible incident, whether it's somethingike a terrorist disaster, tornado, flood is you got to communicate to the peop who are responsible. you've got to have command an control. tell us what happens. >> that is why immediately i went there. first notification i got, i was at the peninsula hotel on 55th street. i was told that a twin engine plane hit the north tower. we didn't know it was terrorist attack. >> mike: thought it was an
8:32 pm
accident. >> strange thing i p walked out the peninsula hotel and looked up at the sky. a beautiful day like it has been toda i said it can't be an excellent. it's too beautiful a day. i thought maybe it was se kind of crazy person. like i said, twin engine plane. i waabout a mile away and the second plane hit. and at that pot, then, of course, i knew it was a terrorist attack. when i got there, we decided to have two command posts. one for the fire department and one for the police department. because the fire department needed to be on the street to see the flames and the fire and observe the rescue effort. that's the way they figh police partment, i wanted to have them help the fire decortment but the main concern was to protect the rest of the city. i didn't want them focussed on that, because remember, there were two attacks. we didn't know if there wouldn't be ten or 12. >> mike: sure. >> when we called the white house, we were told there were seven or eight planes unaccounted for. so we knew about the two attacks in new york.
8:33 pm
at that point we knew aut the attack at the pentagon. we didn't know the plane that went down in pennsylvania. so we thought well, maybe there will be two or three more attacks so we better protect the empire state building and the statue of liberty and churches and synagogues. we had a big long lt of possible terrorist targets. about 120 of them. >> mike: those were already on a list you had. >> already on a list that had been compiled over the years ts, rresting terroris taking material fm them and basically -- f example, we had arrested a group orr terrorists from block lynn who wanted to blow up the subway. if irecall, they had plans for the new york city bways, for the tunnels and several bridges. they had explosives. so a lot of that material had been collected by the f.b. and shad with the police department. wead a joint terrorism task force. that's how we prepared our list of what they would probably attack. believe it or not, the world trade center was not the number one target. the number one target was the stock exchange. that was the one that probably came up the most as
8:34 pm
a target of the terrorists when we would arrest them. >> mikewhen all of this took place, you had to assume a unique position of command. i use that term very deliberately. i think a lot of people don't understand that there are so many different agencies. not just the police and the fire, but the port authority, you have medical emergency people. then you have private businesses and there are hundreds if not -- dozens if not hundreds of entities trying to do their job and someone has to stay in charge and say here is where the decision decisions come from. and you never flinched and you took command and everyone knew rudy giuliani was in charge. was there any moment in your life that p?repared you for september 11? because surely there was something deep downik inside. it wasn't like you said i'll get a book. and read. there was not time for that. >> funny thing is i was writing book about leadership
8:35 pm
when it happened. it finished the first draft of it. i guess the morning that that happened if you had asked me have you been through every conceivable emergency i would have arrogantly said i've been through every emergency. been through airplane clashes, building collapses, blackouts, hostage situations. so yeah, i had been in charge of other emergencies that at that time seemed to me to be massive. so, my first reaction to this when i got there was this is way beyond anything that we have handled before. i had a slight feeling of we're not prepared for tathis. then i started to remember how much all of my people had been through. how much of theseou emergencies do you deal with in new york city about every month? i realize sure, they're not perfectly prepared but they will know how to handle h this. they will know how to deal with something. even if it's beyond us. at least we have had so much experience with all the emergencies.
8:36 pm
they'll be able to function well. >> mike: there is one great surprise i had. i want your reaction to it. when this happened nine years ago today, i a lot of us said well, this is going to continue to happen. are you surprised that we ve not had more master rorrists activities and -- mass terrorist activities and why have we not? >> not only am i surprised i was toldt would happen again. i was warned there would be further attacks right thenn and in the immediate aftermath. of course we did have the anthrax attack a month later which i guess the f.b.i. concluded wasn't terrorist inspired but we just really don't know. >> mike: we didn't know. remember. i scared everybody. we shut down an an arena in arkansas and it was powdered sugar from a funnel cake but we closed the whole arena because everyone thought it was ranthrax. >> for about three weeks there was some degree of panic over it and it would be another attack. i think it hasn't happened
8:37 pm
because of what predent bush did. i know that isn't very popular, or political correct, but i think, i s remember going to the speech he made to the joint session of congress and if i can summarize it he put america on offense. the analysis of the speec is we he been on defense for years. they have take an wrong signal from that. they take a sickal we won't respond like -- signal like we won't respond like with the cole. so boy, we responded. we responded in afghanistan. we responded in iraq. whatever els you think of it. i ink we put them on defense. i think they never expected that -- i think bin laden in a million years never expected that response from america, because he had been used to a defensive, almost apologetic america. which unfortunatelyai we're becoming again, which really concerns me. >> mike: it should concern all of us. mayor, one thi about leadership no one doubts is you offered it to this city and to this cntry at a time. >> didn't have a choice. >> mike: when it was needed. we'll tk to you and bring jon voight back to talk more

8:42 pm
it easy. and put things in proper perspective. that is what true leadership is to me. in other words, sense of confidence. things will be all right. be poised and follow through and do things properly. and he did. [ applause ] >> mike: what steps should america be taking now to better protecturselves against something like this happening again? >> the first thing we should do is right from the vy top, the president of the united states should make it clear that we don't have to, we don't have to ignore our safety and security, you know, in the name of political correctness. [ applause ] i look at the situion at fort hood. with major hasan. it seems to me a man like that only gets promoted.
8:43 pm
a man who is an extre islamic hater, he only gets promoted out of political correctness. people are afraid. i'm learned when i was mayor and i'm sure you did as governor the signals we set at the top ereverberate down to bureaucracy. we have areesident who seems to be afraid to say islamist extremism, refuses to acknowledge we're at war, the bureaucracy and the fear develops boy, i better not go too far and i better be careful. th president has to change the tone. i think we have to stop thinking we can negotiate our way out of the situation withhi iran we have to think about getting a lot tougher. the only thingan that will change iran's mind is fear. the way the only thing that t changed the soviet mind was ronald reagan pointing ssiles at them. [ applause ] think the president has demonstrated total lack of understanding of how to deal, how to protect the country when we have determined
8:44 pm
enemy. the trialf sheikh muhammad in new york. he still hasn't made a decision. he should be tried in a tribunal and probably tried in guantanamo but he ceainly shouldn't be tried n in new york. the mayor of new york says it's going to cost $400 million a year just to protect people here if we try him here. so it makes no sense to do that. the president can't seem t make up his mind. first, he wasn't going to do. then heasn't goi to do. then he hasn't made up his mind and attorney general says no decision has been made. i doesn't take six or seven months to figure out where to try someone. we have the issue with the mosque now. the president a is for it and against it. that is a recipe for creating a void of leadership. that creates a lot of the turmoil we have with people
8:45 pm
demonstrating for it and demonstrating against it. i'm against it. i don't think it should be there. if you want to be for it, step up and be for it. don't do an i'm forit, gee, r so now i'm la against it >> mike: jon, you talked about the mosque and a lot of things that you feelhe has been a lack of clarity. the mayor affirms that. it appears to me that sometimes i'm not sure that his primary focus is on being an american first but almost being a globalist. being somebody who is a concerned about us being a nice, wonderful part of the great big happy family. many of us are saying i want to be part of a happy family. we're only happy when we're strong and we're only happy when we puthreats against us aside. john, your reaction? >> we, as americans, are responsible for peace forll our ally countries. we have the greatest t responsibility. they look to us. and we must take that position. and we are weakening in so
8:46 pm

>> mike:we started the show tonight on how steel became symbol of hope. the cross will be dismissed by some as coincidence. i believe it's more than that. ridicule me if you want. i choose to believe that the ground zero cross was god speaki to us from the rubble. to remind us that no matter how evil man becomes, god aba hasn't abandoned us. in fact, it is in just such a time he really sws up. god has often spoken through simple things. burning bush. tablets of stone. through big things like floods and through little
8:59 pm
things like a still, small voice. not everyone hears hi some are too proud to acknowledge they even need him. but for those of us for whom life is too big to live without him, we look for and we listen for him. i believe the ground zero cross was his way of saying that those 3,000 souls didn't die alone that day. he was there. he would be there for those who grieved over their loss. it was also his way of saying that he hasn't finished with us yet. for all of those who predict gloom for our future, i lon disagree. because as long as he puts crosses right in the very heart of our greatt tragedies, i believe he is saying that while the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, he came that we would have life and have it with abundance. we remember a tragedy tonight, but we reflect on god's triumph over our tragedies. and that
